SECO Augusta, Sam Winer Motors may have ideas on these parts. The radiators (left and right) are entirely specific to this tractor.

Ok been putting in to a little time here and there on the tractor if anyone cares I'm putting a couple pics up to look at! Pulled the radiators and if you were wondering it's a pain in the as# they are big and freaking heavy of course original so I sent them to a radiator shop with obvious leaks they said they are in very decent shape and ready to reinstall what a relief!

Removed the water pump, fan and housings, cleaned it all up and removed the exhaust manifold and intake due to a cracked manifold, that's really not fun when it's this old and crusty!

This thing is an addiction that you don't need it obsesses you it stresses you it peels your money out of your account, you crave eat sleep and breath your next fix! The tracks need new rubber so they scar pavement!!!

For any one who cares about old tracks! I finally had the time today to install the last radiator and fill her up w 15 gallons off coolant a few hose clamps here and there and hit the starter switch primed and choked her and she came alive sounding pretty good with the cracked exhaust fixed and all new belts hoses and gaskets gonna finish the body panel assemblies next and paint her

The folks at Starpoint (www.militarytracks.com), specialize in putting new rubber on your old track pads.
I drove out there in 2015 and met Greg and the crew--really good folks there and they know their stuff.

They did a set for Steve Greenberg's Stuart tank. He seems to like the finished product and was happy with the price. You may find threads about it on here or over at the G503 site. Hope this helps.

You mentioned having installed replacement belts. Are the belts NOS or did you source them from a shop somewhere? M5A4 looks nice,BTW.

Great looking machine and it runs. How did you run up on such a unmolested beauty. All the ones I have seen have been Bubbarized by the power company or some shade tree mechanic!

No, I am not.

The forum rules do not allow you to sell in an open thread. The forum rules also require you to upgrade your membership to go into the biz of selling things. I would suggest that you read the forum rules before you try selling things in the forum.
